Malashock Dance Illuminates Ten Local Choreographers

| January 7, 2024 | 0 Comments

Under the Artistic Director of Christopher K. Morgan, with Everyday Dances III, Malashock Dance is launching its 36th Season. This third iteration of the concert features 10 local choreographers from diverse backgrounds. The performances take place from Thursday, January 25 through Sunday, January 28, 2024 at Malashock Dance Studio Theater, located at 2650 Truxtun Road Suite 200, San Diego, CA 92106.

The artists include Viviana Alcazar, Matthew Armstrong, sol dela rosa, Gary Champi, Megan Curet, John Malashock, Jessica Rabanzo-Flores, Khamla Somphanh, Kyle Sorensen and Gina Bolles Sorensen, and Chelsea Zeffiro.

Morgan will begin full time in January 2024 and is greatly looking forward to amplifying the voices of local choreographers in support of Malashock Dance’s initiative to become a hub for artists to create and engage together.  “After beginning my dance career 28 years ago at Malashock Dance & Company, it is an incredible honor to return to the organization in a leadership capacity. It is a thrilling opportunity to sustain John’s work while bringing a fresh perspective from the array of experiences I’ve had since I last lived in San Diego. I look forward to learning more about the current San Diego arts community and supporting the growth and deepening of the arts ecology in San Diego and beyond,” says Morgan.

The concept of commissioning early and mid-career local artists and producing their work supports its mission to illuminate dance as an invaluable part of the human experience, creating a hub where artists come together to create new work and connect with audiences. The Founding Director, John Malashock, alongside Christopher K. Morgan have enjoyed discovering the wide variety of San Diego-based dance artists who are poised to share their powerful creative voices; demonstrate leadership; and fulfill their artistic vision in collaboration with a community of dance makers and professional dancers.

Malashock Dance, founded by John Malashock in 1988, is one of California’s foremost dance companies known for its innovation, creativity, and commitment to educational and artistic excellence in the field of dance. The mission of Malashock Dance is to illuminate the power of dance as an invaluable part of the human experience. It is a gathering place for artists to create new work, engage with the community, and provide unique educational opportunities.
